Rainy and cold

Oh spring where have you gone???  Anyone who has read my blog for a while knows that I just love watching my girls play soccer.  Saturday was not such a fun soccer day though.  It was the girls' first game here and it was rainy and cold.  The rain felt like ice as we sat there watching the games.  It is rainy and windy again today.  I am soooo ready for some sun and warmth. 
I am excited.  This morning this beautiful item is going to be delivered.
Pretty isn't it?  The one part of this house that I wasn't so sure I like was the master bath.  It is long with two sinks and a clawfoot type tub in between.  The builder had put up two flat mirrors over the sinks and it just made that wall look so long and bare.  I am excited to say that I am liking it a lot better.  We ordered decorative mirrors to go over each sink and this gorgeous sconce will go over the tub.  It is about 58 inches long so it will fill the space beautifully. 
I am also awaiting the arrival of this beauty.

A while back the motor on my auto focus died and I have been dealing with that for several months.  I have to admit, manually focusing my lens is not something I am very good at.  
I have also had several requests to see pictures of our house now that we have our stuff in and everything is relatively done.  I do not have a picture of my scrap room yet.  I still do not have anything on the walls and my shelving unit is more like a storage dump than anything else. But here are a few of my favorite spaces in the house. 
Our bookshelves are done and I love them.  Matt, the man who built them for us is amazing.  I am very impressed with his work.  They turned out even better than I had imagined.  I love how they brighten up this space.
I was a little worried about our huge buffet fitting in the dining room but it perfectly into the space the builder had added to this room.
And my table that worked so perfectly in our other hosue actually works well in the front hall.  I am happy.  I was not thrilled with the idea of putting this table in the basement where no one could see it.
I have been working on a few projects but I can't share any of them with you quite yet.  I will have some stuff to share soon though.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  I truly appraciate you! Have a wonderful week!
